Ehm, I have q question about the Icon legend at the bottom of the screen: when it says new posts, does that mean that someone posted a message since the last I'm visited? So whenever I have not read a post, the icon will be yellow>? And offcourse, grey means that nothing has changed since my last visit?

I think it will show you new posts made by others. I am not sure. Click on it and you`ll see what happens.

It shows you all the posts (give or take ) that have new posts since last time you logged onto the site. However when you read a post with new posts it won't then go grey like on some sites. So if you come on and find a post with a yellow icon, it means new posts have been made since you were last here, but if you read it, then someone makes a new post while you're still on the site, the only way you'll know is by the post count and also that it will have moved up the page. Hope that makes sense

It does make sense! It just isn't very useful

LOL - you're right . It isn't all that useful, like sometimes IE decides to freeze or close down (I love those error message screens - I wonder if anyone has ever actually sent an error report? ) and I have to reenter the site, all the threads that were new the first time that I hadn't looked at yet are grey! Probably would be more useful if they stayed yellow until you actually looked in them . Still - not too hard to remember the post count and plus when they move up the page with a new post it's a giveaway
